HSU Centennial: Rollin Richmond

Humboldt Bay Aquatic Center
Join President Rollin Richmond for an informal look at the impact, joys and challenges of the most recent decade in the 100-year history of HSU.

President Richmond will share a brief retrospective of his presidency. Following a distinguished career as a faculty member, researcher in evolutionary biology, and academic administrator, President Richmond was appointed the sixth president of HSU in 2002. Since his appointment, HSU has gained recognition as a student-centered, diverse, and sustainable university which serves as an important community and economic hub. President Richmond has announced that he will retire at the end of the 2013-14 academic year.

Science on Tap

Blondie's Food and Drink
Dr. Tyler Mitchell from the HSU Physics & Astronomy Department will give an informal lecture entitled: "The Diversity of Extrasolar Planets and the Implications for Life."

In 1995, technological advances allowed for the first detection of a planet that orbited a star other than our Sun, an extrasolar planet (exoplanet). This discovery ushered in an era of rapid development in the field of exoplanet detection. We now have confirmed detections of more than 750 exoplanets. These data revolutionized the theory of planet formation, which had remained relatively unchanged since it's origin in the later half of the 18th century.

The vast amount of data now available has provided insight into the likelihood of the formation of habitable planets like our own. I will discuss the various methods of exoplanet detection and the wide variety of planets that have been found using these methods. I will further discuss how these discoveries changed our understanding of planet formation. Lastly, I'll briefly talk about astrobiology and what implications the large number of extrasolar planet detections have for the existence for life elsewhere in the universe.

The Devil Makes Three and Special Guests

Van Duzer Theater
“There’s a road that goes out of every town. All you’ve got to do is get on it,” Pete Bernhard says.

The guitarist/singer and his cohorts in the raw and raucous trio The Devil Makes Three have found their way onto that road numerous times since they first left their picaresque rural hometown of Brattleboro, Vermont. Back then, they had no idea it would lead them to such auspicious destinations as the Newport Folk and Austin City Limits Festivals, Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza, and on tours with Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell and Trampled By Turtles. Along the way, they drew numerous accolades from a growing fan base and press alike.

TDM3’s travels and travails serve as inspiration for their fourth album and their New West Records debut, I’m a Stranger Here, produced by Buddy Miller and recorded at Dan Auerbach’s (Black Keys) Easy Eye Sound Studio in Nashville.

With upright bassist Lucia Turino and guitarist Cooper McBean, Bernhard crafted a dozen tunes, part road songs, part heartbreak songs and part barnburners. While most bands are propelled from behind by a drummer, TDM3 builds exuberant rhythms from the inside out, wrapping finger-picked strings and upsurging harmonies around chugging acoustic guitar and bass, plying an ever-growing audience onto its feet to jump, shake and waltz.

TDM3’s sound is garage-y ragtime, punkified blues, old n’ new timey without settling upon a particular era, inspired as much by mountain music as by Preservation Hall jazz. “We bend genres pretty hard,” Bernhard says.

Opening the show will be Northern California favorites The Brothers Comatose. The Brothers have performed at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Kate Wolf Festival, the High Sierra Music Festival and many more!
